NORMAN — Disaster has come to the community, but we are Oklahomans and we will move bravely forward.

Members of the Builders Association of South Central Oklahoma have decided to press on with the annual Festival of Homes because they feel the best way they can serve the community during this time is to provide people with homes.

BASCO is committed to rebuilding our community and staying Oklahoma strong. The 2013 Festival of Homes will be June 8 to16. The homes are open 1 to 7 p.m. daily. Some of the homes on the tour are located in Moore.

“Our normal policy is not to sell any homes entered in the festival until after the festival is over so they are available for viewing. But, because of the urgent needs for housing, we are selling homes as soon as they become available,” said David Caddell, BASCO Festival of Homes chairman.

We will make every effort to keep current information available about which homes are open for viewing and which homes are sold, and apologize for any inconvenience you may experience.

“BASCO is committed to doing our part to help rebuild our community,” he said. “Our thoughts are with our friends and family in Moore and the Moore Home Builders Association during this difficult time.”
